IMGUR COMMENTS: How’s that for the use of information background. If you’re going to copy something verbatim to post on a board like this, please use your own words and not just one page from any source. I find it completely disrespectful to the people who wrote that page, as your intentions are obvious and it’s just in bad taste. Copy and pasting verbatim is a straight up no-no. This is why we have some standards on Imgur.
There’s people who work hard to make these informational posts, and then you just rip them off like that? I think you should know better than that, especially being an admin on this site.
